Access Health CT Announces Special Enrollment Period For Covered Connecticut Program
Eligible Connecticut residents have until June 30 to enroll
HARTFORD, Conn. (Feb. 15, 2022) — Access Health CT (AHCT) today announced a Special Enrollment Period for the Covered Connecticut Program that provides health insurance at no cost to Connecticut residents who meet eligibility requirements. This Special Enrollment Period runs now through June 30.
Created and funded by the State of Connecticut, the Covered Connecticut Program pays the customer’s portion of the monthly payment (premium) directly to their insurance company. The program also covers the cost-sharing amounts they would typically have to pay with a health insurance plan, such as co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles and maximum out-of-pocket costs.
To qualify for the Covered Connecticut Program, Connecticut residents must: meet income requirements, be a parent or caretaker relative with children in the household that are under age 19 (if the children are age 18 or older, they must be full-time students in secondary school), use all the financial help available through Access Health CT and be enrolled in an eligible Silver level health insurance plan. For details on income requirements and more, visit AccessHealthCT.com and search “Covered Connecticut” or click here.
Coverage begins on the first of the month following enrollment. For example, if a person enrolls on February 5, their coverage begins March 1.
“The significant financial help eligible residents can receive through the Covered Connecticut Program makes enrolling in a health insurance plan an affordable option for even more people, which advances a critical part of Access Health CT’s mission – reducing the number of uninsured people in our state,” said Chief Executive Officer of Access Health CT, James Michel.
